This isn't a technical question, so pass if you like.
How much a typical Senior Unix Admin makes in Southern California? Say
Orange County or LA downtown, Santa Monica high tech? I'm hoping to
get an idea from actual Unix admins who work at Southern Cali.
A Sr. Unix admin at Wall Street makes average 140K - 160K (base+bonus)
depends on the firm you work for. When I say Sr. Unix admin, I mean
MS/BS CS, 7+ years admin exp (cheap linux exp doesn't count), Classic
Unix(shell tools awk,sed, regex, DNS, sendmail, jumpstart, AIX NIM,
TCP/IP etc.) Solaris 6,7,8,9,10, E4500 - E10000, Veritas Everything
(VxVM, VxFS, VCS), AIX (- 690 , 570 ) power 4, power 5 LPAR, basic
linux, EMC SRDF, scripting, Perl. App support experience such as
Oracle, Sybase, Weblogic, WebSphere, JBOSS, Blackstone;
Security/Intrusion detection is plus. Other tools like tivoli tsm,
tivoli monitoring, Enterprise Change Management, DR and project
Does such Sr. Unix admin is needed in Southern CA? How much such Sr.
Unix Admin typically makes here? I'm under the impression that, in CA,
most firms use cheap linux boxes (like google, yahoo/overture), they
need either cheap SAs (60K-80K) do basic stuff or programmer-like SAs
do scripting... But most pay is 110K with everything. Not a lot of
companies really need EMC SRDF/Veritas VCS/IBM LPAR/Sun 10000 high end
products. Is that true? -thanks
